Overview

The objectives of audit management is to evaluate the current resource management, suggest improvements, and to lay down standards for future performance by documenting any audits; thereby having a reference for any recorded audits. Once an audit is created, observations or improvements for each audit can be added via the Findings tab, and recommendations for each audit can be added via the Recommendations tab.


Audit Register

The audit register will list down all created audits within the system. Access the audit register by navigating to Menu > Audit Management > Audit or Menu > Workspace > Audit. You can configure the fields visible and are searchable in the filter, that are displayed in the audit registers via the Field Configuration section under Audit Settings.


Filter audit details in the register, by clicking on the 'filter' icon at the top-right corner of the window. This will expand the filter window to select criteria in order to filter details. Filters can be configured via the Field Configuration section under Audit Settings.


Export register details on to an Excel sheet once the register is filtered with the details you require, by clicking on the 'Excel Export' button at the top-right corner of the window.


Group register details in the displayed grid by dragging the column you wish to group by, and dropping it on the grid header section.
